Walter’s problem is that he does not think Cheryl would give him a second look: that he would have to take part in some exceptional feats to win her attention and affection.
With some striking CGI, Walter Mitty flies to Greenland where he meets up with a drunken helicopter pilot (Olafur Darri Olafsson), then on to Iceland, finally to a meeting with the great explorer who allows Walter to take a peek in his camera at a snow leopard and who tells him where to find the negative he seeks.
McLeod 1947 movie about a proofreader so introverted that his mother brokers a marriage to a woman who does little but henpeck the poor guy. Because the transitions from real life to daydreams are not obvious, we don’t know whether he really accomplished globe-trotting feats beyond his wildest dreams or whether he never left the New York locale of his residence.
The film is the story of an ordinary man who has not done anything notable before and passionate about his job at TIME magazine.
Paralyzed by family responsibilities and the daily work grind, Walter finds solace in his day dreams, where he rescues dogs from burning buildings, pummels his overbearing boss in a cartoonish street fight, and woos the woman of his dreams, accounting staff member Cheryl Melhoff (Kristen Wiig).However, when it is announced that Life Magazine will cease publication of physical issues, in a move to the online market, famed Life photojournalist Sean O’Connell (Sean Penn) sends in a final cover image that he claims will capture the  “quintessence” of the iconic magazine. The current version directed by Ben Stiller and starring Stiller in the title role has Mitty not henpecked by a woman but dumped on by a Life magazine transition director (Adam Scott) who must decide which personnel to lay off as that magazine reverts to an online edition and who in one scene flips a paper clip to the back of Mitty’s neck to see if the daydreamer is alive. Walter has a romantic interest in Cheryl Melhoff; a woman who has recently been hired at TIME magazine, played by actress Kristen Wiig. We go to the movies and are able to leap tall buildings at a single bound, drive across Rodeo Drive in a Batmobile, become the first person to set foot on Mars.


If a narrative drama, the film does not congeal and resembles little more than a series of adventures with Walter’s love interest serving as merely a fragile anchor. When Walter hears that Cheryl likes men who are adventurous and exciting, Walter has daydreams of himself doing various adventurous things such as mountain climbing and saving puppies from burning buildings to name a few. Released just last December, many people are still talking about the romantic, adventure, fantasy, comedy, and drama filled film and highly recommend to watch it.
Although we can assume that Walter Mitty will win Cheryl’s affection, that would not be long lived as he does not reinvent himself simply by traveling to destinations that feature an erupting volcano or plunging into icy water chased by sharks. You’re something other than you are, and so is Ben Stiller as Walter Mitty, a guy who works in the basement for Life magazine shuffling negatives, a fellow who himself has been missing out on life. Soon after these moments of daring, he will go back to dreaming of flying into a burning building to rescue Cheryl’s three-legged dog and will wind up once again depending on an eHarmony customer service rep (Patton Oswalt) to secure dates. Yet, The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a surprisingly impactful and uplifting film experience on par with some of the year’s best indie offerings – one that is elevated further by the sharp eye of Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Stuart Dryburgh (The Piano). Kristen Wiig as Cheryl Melhoff in ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’Viewers who are expecting an adaptation of the short story or a remake of the earlier film production will find that this iteration of Walter Mitty is almost entirely new.
Well for one thing there’s this young woman, a co-worker named Cheryl Melhoff (Kristen Wiig).


As a result, some viewers will be surprised to discover that playing a convincing and relatable everyman, rather than an over-the-top cartoon character, is fully within the actor’s repertoire. He’d like to ask her out or at least chat her up but instead tries to contact her by a “wink” on his eHarmony site. Stiller’s take on Walter Mitty isn’t going to win him an Academy Award nomination but there’s a subtlety and sincerity in his execution that is right at home with the film’s enjoyable balance of humor, philosophizing, and drama. But Walter Mitty is such a dork that even the computer has his number and filters out his “wink”by not allowing it to reach the intended woman. It’s a convincing performance, one that Stiller should be proud to include in his filmography – and one that should keep audiences rooting for Walter throughout his transformative journey.
